Water Bottle Classroom Initiative Launches at CPS
Posted on 03/12/2020
Water BottleCambridge Public Schools celebrated National Children's Dental Health Month in February with the Water Bottle Classroom Initiative. 1200 water bottles were distributed to all the first and third graders in the CPS. 

Why Water?
Cambridge Public fluoridated water, is the best beverage for maintaining your oral health. Students cannot brush their teeth at school so drinking water is the next best alternative.


Providing water bottles to students for classroom use, teaches a student that drinking water is good for your mouth and body, keeping you healthy. Healthy students learn better.

The water bottles for the Healthy Smiles Initiative are provided by the Charles Bullock Trust Fund which supports the oral health needs of school aged children in Cambridge.

Dental Healthy Foods and Snacks at School
Choose fruits and vegetables for lunches or snacks that are crunchy and help clean teeth as you eat and are low in sugar. It is the next best thing to brushing your teeth.

Healthy SmilesMilk, and other dairy products such as cheese and yogurt, are low in sugar, which is a good thing for your dental health. Plus, they contain protein and are full of calcium, which can help to strengthen your teeth.

Crackers, chips, and breads stick to teeth once introduced in the mouth and stay longer on teeth, which feeds the cavity promoting plaque. Eating a crunchy fruit or vegetable, and then drinking water after, will help clean teeth from sticky foods.
